Relieved of Catarrh Due to La Grippe, Thanks to
Mrs. Laura Berberick, 69 years old,
of 1205 Willow Ave., Hoboken, N. J.
"Four ears ago I had a severe attack of La
Grippe. After my sickness I was troubled with
hoarseness and slime in the head And throat, and
was told I had Catarrh. I took some medicine
but without much beneit. Every winter for four years. I have had
"aGrippe (last winter three times).
The Catarrh grew worse. I could not lie down or sleep at night.
Was always troubled with slime,. pain in my back and a terrible
headache every morning, when I woke up, and had no blood.
I got a Peruna calendar in Danish, my native language, and I read
it through, every testimony, and then I bought a bottle of Perunn.
To-day I can truthfully testify that Peruna has been a great benent
to me. It has given me blood and strength. I can lie down and sleep
without being troubled. I have no pain, headache, or noise in my
head. I have gained in weight three pounds, which I think is good
for my age. I will be sixty-nine years old next summer. I have used
Peruna since- I started in February, and I use it yet. I feel cheerful
and happy thanks to Peruna. It will always be in my home and I
recommend it to those who need it."

GERMANS TO HAVE
ONLY DEFENSE ARMY b
Ebert, However, Admits Plan to Use
NEED FOOD AND MATERIALS
New German President Says Bern
storff Won't Attend Peace
Weimar, Feb. 15.-(By the Asso
ciated Press.)-Count von Bernstorff
will not go to the peace conference
as a German delegate; Germany plans
for the time being at least a people's
army on the basis of general conscrip
tion. Germany will announce within
a few days her intention to carry out
complete disarmament and demobili
zation and a commission made up of
the center, Democratic and Socialist
parties is now discussinig details of
I the new governmental program.
These points were made by Fried
rich Ebert, the new President of Ger
many, in an informal talk with for
eign newspaper men today. They an
swered questions of American and
English correspondents, asked after he
had read a formal innocuous state
ment which followed the lines of his
address on Wednesday, in which he
emphasized Germany's intention to re
President Ebert read his statement
rapidly and then signified his willing
ness to answer questions, an oppor
tunity of which the newspaper men
made immediate use.
Only a Defense Army.
The question of a disarmament was
first raised since reports from the
peace conference in Paris indicate it is
occupying a large place in discussions
there. President Ebert frankly as
tonished his hearers by his declara
tion that a commission was already
working on the problem. He said
Germany in future was going to have
only an army of defense. It was at
the very end of his talk that he ad
mitted this guard will be raised by
conscription, and he left the room
before further details could be elicited.
Ile said the assurance that the bor
ders of the country would be pro
tected was absolutely essential al
though he would welcome universal
disarmament, which would make such
protection unnecessary. Ile declared
an understanding had already been
reached by which various branches of
industry will be united and operated
socialistically, adding that onl'
monopolized business will be social
ized. In answer to a question relat
ive to foodstugs in Germany he said
he regarded the situation as very
gloomy since the conditions are very
hard. Germany, he said, has only a
limited amount of foreign securities
with which she can purchase food.
"Our gold, as the world knows, has
in large part gone to the Entente,"
he said. "All the gold and securities
now on hand would not suffice to
cover more than the most urgent
needs Germany would he glad to re
pay honorably and uprightly as soon
as possible. If food and rawv materi' is
are furnished and Germany is given
assistance towardi rehabilitation, I be
lieve the economic and general sit
uation can be brought into an ordlerly
andi progressive Path."
Count Brockdorf-Rantzau, the for
eign minister in the provisional cab
inet, Dr. Edwardl David, the presi
d(ent of the national assembly, and
many persons egperiencedl on econom
ic lines, he sa id, would Probably at
tend the peace conference for Ger
many, "'but not Bernstorff,"' he added
instantly to a questioner. It was the
first time Count von Bernstorff's par
tici:pation, which had been advertised
freely, was denied. The G;ermnan peace
dlelegates, President Ebert continue,
will appear with definite propos5als,
